Frequency Electronics, Inc. announces the award of a contract from the Office of Naval Research (ONR) to develop a Mercury Ion atomic clock for application to various US Naval platforms.
Contract value, if all options are exercised, is approximately $20.2M. The base period of the contract is two years with two additional options of two years and one year respectively. FEI CEO Stan Sloane commented, “We are extremely pleased to announce this award and an expanding relationship with ONR on advanced
technology atomic clock development. The baseline technology of the Mercury Ion atomic clock was first developed by a Jet Propulsion laboratory
(JPL) and California Institute of Technology team, under the DARPA ACES program. FEI will work with its industrial partners and other ONR-funded
government organizations to continue that development and deliver pre-production prototypes under the contract. We are looking forward to working
with ONR and our other partners to advance this exciting and groundbreaking technology.”

Frequency Electronics’ Rubidium Atomic Clock Passes Muster Possibly for U.S.A.F.’s GPS IIIF Satellite
Always great to pass a test and that’s what occurred when Frequency Electronics, Inc. (“FEI” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ-FEIM) announced its next generation Rubidium atomic clock successfully completed a Critical Design Review (CDR) by prime contractor Lockheed Martin Space for potential use on the U.S. Air Force’s GPS III Follow On (GPS IIIF) satellite program.
The Digital Rubidium Atomic Frequency Standard (DRAFS) clock is an evolution of previous generation Rubidium atomic clocks designed for space applications. The DRAFS clock leverages technology developed by FEI and currently in operation on several government satellites. The successful CDR allows the new DRAFS clock to move forward into fabrication and testing to verify performance.
